Miracle Treat Day is a Children's Miracle Network Hospital fundraiser. The GHS Children’s Medical Center, a not-for-profit hospital, has been a beneficiary of CMN since 1986. Miracle Treat Day generated more than $6,300 for the Children's Medical Center last year. Proceeds in 2012 will help fund equipment and technology upgrades at the area's only children’s hospital.
The 154-bed Georgia Health Sciences Children's Medical Center is the second-largest children's hospital in the state, providing the highest level of pediatric critical care and neonatal intensive care as well as a wide range of general and complex health care for children.
